24 Weeks (& 3 days)


This is what I wear to work everyday. Either black or red. In black, the bump is kind of hidden. In red, it tends to bust out a little bit more. So Avery loves to move around and kick to the left side of my belly button, but today she was nice and fiesty on the OTHER side of my navel. Felt weird. But, of course, I love feeling her move! :) My hip flexor that I hurt on Christmas is stillll bugging me, but not near as bad! It's amazing how Progesterone affects all the ligaments in the pelvic region. Today Brian and I went to the park with Kerbey after we worked out to kick the soccer ball (Kerbs is a STUD soccer playin' pup). Um...I can't run more than 0.5 miles an hour so it was basically like Brian and kerbey were playing with a grandma. That's about the only part of being pregnant that's a little bit frustrating. I also noticed today some workout changes that are gonna have to happen. Pushups have progressively gotten harder, but I've started back up on my 10 pushups a night routine, so that's made them easy again. HOWEVER, I noticed that my back droops when I do them, which is a PROBLEM, so I think I'm gonna have to start doing knee-push-ups for the rest of my pregnancy. Avery is just a little too much for me to handle :) I discovered last week that the elliptical is the only kind of cardio that doesn't hurt my hip flexor, so since walking isn't an option right now- the elliptical is my new friend :) I'm gonna have to cut all the weights down again too. Gotta listen to my body, right? Tomorrow we have a doc apmt where we test for gestational diabetes by drinking some crazy sweet concoction and then take my blood an hour later. I don't think we get another ultra-sound, but I WISH we did :) I want to see Little Avery again :)
K...thanks for reading! Bye :)
